Is it safe to travel after getting vaccinated?
Do not travel internationally until you are fully vaccinated. If you are not fully vaccinated and must travel, follow CDC’s international travel recommendations for people who are not fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread COVID-19.
How long do vaccines last for travel?
The vaccination requires a course of 3 injections for full protection. The second dose is given 1 to 3 months after the first and provides immunity for about a year. A third dose, given 5 to 12 months after the second, provides immunity for up to 3 years.
What vaccines should you get before traveling?

When does Covid vaccine become effective?
It typically takes 2 weeks after vaccination for the body to build protection (immunity) against the virus that causes COVID-19. You are not fully vaccinated until 2 weeks after the second dose of a 2-dose vaccine or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine.
Do you need to quarantine if you have been vaccinated?
You should still get tested 3-5 days after international travel. You do NOT need to self-quarantine after arriving in the United States.
Can you get all travel vaccinations at once?
Many travel vaccines require multiple shots or take time to become fully effective. But some multiple-dose vaccines (like hepatitis A) can still give you partial protection after just one dose.
How much does it cost to get travel vaccinations?
General travel vaccinations vary in price from $35.00 – $160.00* each. Some very specific vaccines which are occasionally used for travellers going to high risk locations can cost a lot more. Your doctor will discuss these costs with you before you decide whether to proceed with the recommended vaccination.
How long do shots take to inject?
Intramuscular administration relies upon the high vascularity of muscle tissue to achieve a moderately rapid onset of action, usually within 5 to 10 minutes.
How many shots are required for hepatitis A vaccine?
The combination vaccine can be given to anyone 18 years of age and older and is given as three shots over 6 months. All three shots are needed for long-term protection for both hepatitis A and hepatitis B.
When should you get shots before traveling?
Again, you have to schedule your immunizations at least 4 to 6 weeks before traveling, so make more time than you may need to plan ahead and get vaccinating early. Getting your shots 4 weeks in advance will give them enough time to start working and will protect you against travel-related illnesses or disease.
